2.0 out of 5 stars Flatters to deceive, 24 July 2007
This review is from: The Jelly Effect: How to Make Your Communication Stick (Paperback)
I read the reviews so decided to try out the book. Lots of big typeface and few words on the page, I have seen too many of these books before. This is effectively 10 powerpoint slides s-t-r-e-t-c-h-e-d into a book. The ideas are fine, but nothing that I have not seen before, in more detail, elsewhere.

I took a look at the author's website, and, surprise, surprise, some of the reviewers here on Amazon are the same people as give him 'testimonials' on his website for his courses. Not sure of the integrity of all involved.

Overall, it's an okay book, but not worthy of the lavish praise heaped on it by some of these 'reviewers'

Does one need to be an author to criticise a book? I've never made a film, but having seen it, I know Universal Soldier 3 is rubbish.
